Hi, your transmission is slipping because of internal issues. You will need to have someone open it up and fix the forward clutches...possibly a band. It is however possible that all you need is a shift solenoid if it's not forward clutches...
Summarily, transmission needs to be checked by a qualified trans. tech in order to get the problem isolated and not guess at the problem, because it could be very costly.

I have a 1996 chevy tahoe that will not shift into drive and overdrive

Assuming you have checked your transmission fluid levels, you may require a soft parts rebuild of your transmission, or an adjustment of your upper clutch band

I have a 1996 Chevy Tahoe. Just put in a new computer system on it. Now the shifting is messed up. What could be causing this? Shifted fine with the old brain before I changed it.

The new computer may have been downloaded with different shift points from the factory. Make the computer is set for the same transmission.

I have a 1996 Chevy tahoe it Starts and run fine, just doesnt want to shift in to 3rd or 4th gear?

Check to make sure that the fluid level is correct. There are shift solenoids inside your transmission that could be bad or it could be more serious internal problems. You can't really tell without a scanner. You could remove your tranny oil pan and see if there is a lot of sediment and chunks in the bottom of it. That is not a good sign if there is. If your oil is dark and has burnt smell that is not good either. When you pull your pan and filter off you will then be able to see the shift solenoid. They are easy to change but again you don't really know if they are bad without a scan tool.

Will a 1990 chevy 1500 truck 4x4 transmission fit in a 1997 4x4 chevy tahoe

yes it will as long as it is the same model transmission. As long as you get a transmission out of a standard cab truck you should be ok. ( for a good idea Most 88-98 gm trucks, full size blazers,jimmys,tahoes, and yukons will interchange) same chassis just different bodys and emblems

1996 Tahoe error code P0700 detected at PepBoys

P0140 Oxygen Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 2) P1192 Post-catalyst Fuel Trim System Bank 1

Replace the O2 sensor after the catalytic Converter and check to make sure the wire harness and clips are not damaged. Also check the O2 sensor fuse in the fuse panel to make sure there not blown. 
As for the p0700 code is a generic code and the ECM needs to re-calibrated for the performance upgrade in your transmission. It's common to happen when there are changes like the transmission fluid pressure has been altered which would give it a better and firmer shift, but the transmission reads the higher line pressure as a problem. If you take it to a good transmission shop with a tech2 scanner, the tech2 can change the transmission ECM parameters and that way it will recognize the higher transmission line as a norm. 
Have done a few upgrades on the 4L60E with a common swap of the servo's with a corvette servo's ($45.00) to firm up the shift and raise the transmission line pressure to keep the slipping to a minimal and also bring down the shift points at WOT on the 1st-2nd shift to get going a bit faster (used Tech2 scanner). 
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
